Reaching for the Arts 2017-2018
The mission of Reaching For The Arts is to bring performing and visual arts distinction to the New York City youth by affording them the opportunity to learn, practice, and perform with professional artists in order to showcase their talents citywide and beyond. Through a variety of after school programs, students gain the education and confidence in the arts to acquire skills needed to apply to specialized arts high schools and possibly pursue careers in the arts.

Every bit of monetary funding is extremely important in keeping RFA true to its mission of giving students the opportunity to experience as well as develop skills in the arts. Funding will give our students private lessons, transportation to trips such as museums, concerts, Broadway shows, pay for performance venues, pay RFA artists, museum costs, art supplies, music stands, instrument repair as well as accessories such as rosin for bows, replacement bows, strings, bridges, shoulder pads for violins and violas, wax for trumpet and trombone, and horn mouth pieces just to name a few.
